Benefits Of A Garden Office Shed

You may work for yourself or you may not be required to attend a particular office or location in order to undertake your employment – or if you may simply require your own space in which to relax and pursue your own projects – but whatever your current circumstances, it’s very likely that you’ve thought about investing in a garden office shed. This addition to your property is the perfect solution for those who wish to have their own unique space in which to work and relax. Here are a few reasons why you should seriously consider following your gut instinct and installing a garden office shed:


Being closer to nature is proven to be beneficial to our mental and physical health. Locating your place of work right in the middle of your garden means that you can treat yourself to a break from the hustle and bustle of the outside world, and allow yourself the opportunity to focus your mind and enjoy some peace and quiet. Installing large windows, glass doors and skylights – resulting in extra access to natural light and views of the surrounding area – will enhance your enjoyment of the time you spend in the new structure even further.

Perfect Privacy

Your garden office is your own space. You are in control, and you can focus on your work with no interruptions, distractions or prying eyes. It serves as a place to think, as well as a place to which you can always escape. Consider it your own private den.

You Can “Go To Work” While Working from Home

Many self employed or remote workers prefer to feel as though they are actively “going to work” to aid in their sense of motivation. It makes sense to set aside a space in which work is to take place that is separate from the spaces in which you live and enjoy leisure time. With a garden office shed, you can leave your house and move into a separate zone of productivity in a way that incurs no commuting costs whatsoever and takes up hardly any time at all. In the long run, investing in a garden office will work out far cheaper than renting or owning your own office on an ongoing basis too.

Your Space, Your Rules

It’s wonderful to have the chance to take ownership of your own territory and surround yourself with things that you love. Forget decorating a pokey desk with a couple of picture frames and pot plants – you can choose the design of garden office sheds from start to finish, without the threat of change or any rules to follow.

You Don’t Even Need Planning Permission

It’s extremely easy to get confused about planning permission when it comes to putting up new structures on your property – and this is one of the main aspects that put people off acquiring a garden office. However, more often than not, you’ll find that these particular buildings require no permission whatsoever to be erected! They are considered Permitted Development, and, as long as you follow a few simple rules, you’re safe to proceed

Your office building should not be used as self-contained accommodation, nor should it feature an antenna or stand closer to the nearest road than your house. If it is to stand closer than two metres from the building, it should measure no taller than two and a half metres from ground level. If you plan to erect it at a greater distance than two metres from the boundary of your property, its eaves can measure no more than two and a half metres from ground level, with the maximum height for a pent or mono-pitched roofed shed being three metres or, for a dual-pitched roof, four metres at its highest point. Stick to these rules, and no planning permission will be required for your garden office shed.
